Mikkeli Illustration Triennial is a competition that brings together the top artists in Finland and celebrates the art of illustration. This year 89 illustrators took part in this top-notch competition and over 250 works were turned in, so the competition was intense! From all submitted works the best of the best was chosen by the jury, which consisted of well-known Finnish illustrators Antti Kalevi, Meria Palin, Matti Pikkujämsä ja Anja Reponen – and Matti Karttunen, the head of Mikkeli Art Museum.
There will be some serious money prizes given to the top three illustrators, so good luck to everyone!
